The 25-year-old Rocky River, Ohio native notched 10 goals and 37 assists for Providence this season, statistics that put him second on the team in both assists in points. He also was solid in the playoffs as he tallied eight goals in correlation with five assists as the AHL Bruins made it to the Eastern Conference semifinals falling just short of the apex of AHL hockey, the Calder Cup.
His best season with the Providence Bruins came in the 2011-12 season. He tallied 18 goals and 30 assists for a total of 48 points in 69 games.
Although he did not see any action with the “Beantown Bruins” during the 2012-13 season, he was a part of the team in the 2011-12 campaign. In three games, he scored one goal which came on a lone shot. As the report notes, it is likely that he will begin the 2013-14 season with Providence.
This is a great signing for Boston because the two-way deal allows for flexibility for both Providence and the parent club. It will be interesting to see whether Camper will have a chance to make an impact for Boston next season.
